Feed the Fasting

In the Horn of Africa, the poorest struggle to find food to break their fasts. ARF is in a rush to feed families facing starvation across the Horn of Africa, where at least 40% of the population is undernourished. This Ramadan, they will struggle to find food for both Suhoor and Iftar; we’ll rely on you, your Zakat and Sadaqah again. African Relief Fund (ARF) tackles food poverty with our food distribution programme. Our programme runs throughout the year, but in Ramadan, we increase our efforts. We distribute food parcels and provide warm iftars to underprivileged communities in the blessed month. Can you support our efforts?

‘Whoever gives iftar to one who is fasting will have a reward like his, without that detracting from the reward of the fasting person in the slightest.’ (Tirmidhi, 807).

Family Food Pack: £75

African Relief Fund (ARF) tackles food poverty with our food distribution programme. We donate food parcels to needy families. Our food parcels contain items that are non-perishable and high in nutrition. They can last an average-sized family three weeks, ensuring children don’t go hungry and parents don’t have to skip meals to feed their little ones.

We fed 10,692 adults and 7,000 children last year

ARF Fed 12,000 families in 2021

For many people we support, ARF’s food distribution programme is a lifeline from starvation. In 2021, 12,000 families across the Horn of Africa received food parcels through ARF’s food distribution programme. Last year, we donated Food Packs to thousands of families. It was your Zakat that made this possible. This year, we need your support again.

Warm Iftars: £300

Ramadan is a time when people love to come together to worship and enjoy a complete meal after a day of fasting. It is an event they look forward to.

Hence, in addition to our food parcel distribution, we provide Warm Iftars to underprivileged communities in the blessed month. You can donate £300 to provide a warm Iftar for 100 adults and children and gain limitless blessings.

Give your Zakat to the Hungry in 2023

90% of Somalia faces severe drought, the worst in nearly 40 years. Three consecutive failed rainy seasons mean severe water shortages, which have caused displacement, diarrhoea-related deaths and a rise in malnutrition. 3.5 million people are now living with extreme hunger. Your Zakat can save them from starvation.

This Ramadan, we need to boost our efforts to provide food aid to the millions of people affected by the prolonged drought in Somalia. Can you help us do that?

Give Zakat

The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: ‘Whoever performs a fardh (obligation) (in Ramadan), shall be given the reward of seventy faraaidh (obligations) in any other time …’ (Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah, 1887).

Care for the Orphan

There are thousands of orphans in Somalia. These poor children are alone or sometimes taken in by grandparents or other family members. But, those who adopt orphans can rarely afford to, as most families struggle to make ends meet. And with the extra mouth to feed, the daily challenge of putting food on the table becomes almost impossible. However, despite the care shown by the guardian families, finding food becomes even harder for them. From providing an orphan with good food, clean clothes, and quality education, the guardian families are struggling more than ever.

Sponsor an Orphan
‘Abu Huraira reported: A man came to the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, and he complained about the hardness of his heart. The Prophet said, “If you want to soften your heart, feed the poor and pat the head of the orphan.”’ (Musnad Aḥmad, 7522).

We Need Your Help

ARF is working towards lessening their struggles, but we need your help. Our Orphan Sponsorship Programme provides families who take in orphans with monthly food packs and a stipend. With many people and their children facing food poverty this Ramadan, the extra mouth to feed will strain guardian families.

Please help us help them and the orphan children who depend on their care.

With your £30 a month, you can help us provide an orphan with food, clothing, education and access to healthcare.
